RUAG Australia opens new, accredited paint facility for high-specification/high-standard support to aerospace and defence programs

Specifically designed in consultation with leading industry specialist, Lowbake, and approved by aerospace and defence global supply chain industry partners, the new paint booth facility is engineered to ensure faster precision finishing solutions for the application of aerospace paints including waterborne epoxy, polyurethane and fuel tank coating with improved curing efficiency and additional capabilities for curing fuel cell coatings.

"We understand the customer's need for quick aircraft turnaround, affordability and reliability. This new paint booth facility allows us to meet the rapidly increasing demand to support both industry diversification and our participation in programs, such as the F-35," states Terry Miles, General Manager Operations, RUAG Australia. "Specifically designed to solidify our strong position within the industry for aircraft surface finishing, the accredited Wingfield Special Processing Centre is also a second source service-provider, providing the Australian defence and aerospace industry with the necessary alternative supply chain solution for surface finishing," adds Terry Miles.

The fully automated paint booth facility meets high aerospace and defence standards and accommodates a broad range of components and component sizes. It also ensures prompt processing times, especially as it allows the finishing process to operate in all ambient weather conditions. Features of the paint and curing complex include a minimal contamination design, 10 micron minimum inlet filtration, full downdraught configuration and 1200 lux light, a minimum part surface requirement.

"The needs and demands of the aerospace industry are evolving as technology becomes more advanced and we have a strong drive to keep pace with these advancements. The creation of the new paint booth facility is proof of how we responded to our customers' needs with services that support their requirements more effectively, reliably and in a sustainable manner," confirms Stephan Jezler, Senior Vice President Aviation International, RUAG MRO International.
